Lets make no bones about this, the performance of Chelsea this afternoon at the Millenium Stadium, in Cardiff, Wales taught the 'new' Chelsea type plastic fans a bit of our history.
How to play rubbish just like the Chelsea teams of the past, but to write a new chapter in our history there should be a section that should be titled "How to play rubbish and win the Carling Cup."
And the sub heading should read 'in beating Arsenal to boot.'
There is no doubt about it. Chelsea don't do anything easy at the moment. We go a goal down and looked ragged. We equalised from a Drogba goal that could have been easily given offside, our inspirational Captain gets stretchered off after an accidental kick in the face and we score the winner five minutes from time from the man of the moment, Didier Drogba.
The latest news on John Terry is that he re-joined the team back at the stadium, he was seen getting on the team coach fully suited and booted and I have just seen TV pictures of JT at Cardiff Airport waiting for the flight back to London.
As for Arsenal. Well I really do not know where to start. Before the game I hated Arsenal, after the game with the disgraceful conduct of Adebayour, Toure and Fabregas, I really do not have the time for a team that HAS established and experienced first teamers conducting themselves in the manner that saw Adebayour and Toure get sent off and Fabregas booked and to be fair should have been sent off too for the way he reacted whilst throwing his arms about and his toys out of the pram.
Chelsea's Mikel was sent off and Lampard was booked within the same incident. Wayne Bridge was seen receiving treatment to his head after it appeared he was caught by a flailing arm or two, notably from Adebayour.
I am sure we haven't heard the last of this unsavory episode and I cannot wait to see the FA throw the book at Teacher 'Whinger' and his gang of unruly kids - oops sorry established and experienced first-teamers.
